Ok, so for me Blackest Night has been the event the year so far, but I'm choosing an underdog for the second best. First of all, I am a huge fan of Geoff Johns. His past run (No pun intended) with Wally West as the Flash has always been one of my all time favorite storylines (especially Rogue War). Ethan Van Sciver is also one of the top players in my book, his work in Green Lantern never ceases to amaze me. So when we saw that these two legends would be bringing Barry Allen back at the conclusion of Final Crisis Aftermath: Rogue's Revenge in The Flash: Rebirth, I was syched. At first the series started out pretty slow and I wasn't liking the changes in continuity, but the promising storyline and return of a hero among heroes kept me hooked. This really starts to get interesting when we see that the Black Flash has been killed and from there the hits keep coming from every direction. The return of Barry Allen, Savitar, Lady Flash, and Johnny Quick all crumble to dust after touching Barry, Barry starts turning into the new Black Flash, Barry's accident that turned him into the Flash also created the Speed Force, the return of Professor Zoom, and of course what has made this series all worth it for me thus far...........................The escape of Max Mercury from the Speed Force back to the world of the living. This series is really picking up with two issues left. I can't wait to see what happens to our favorite speedsters and what lasting effects this will have on all the people surrounding them. The Flash: Rebirth is the front runner for the silver medal so far....... What do you guys think? Have you read it? Are you planning on reading it? What are your thoughts?
